Floyd Mayweather is a former boxer and one of the richest athletes of all time. It’s pretty unsurprising that he opted for such a path as his father and uncles were engaged in this kind of sport. As an amateur, Floyd was a bronze medalist at the 1996 Olympic Games and gained victories at 3 US Golden Gloves championships.
Mayweather turned professional in 1996 and competed till 2015, making a short comeback in 2017. He gained many titles in 5 weight categories, comprising 4 WBC, IBF, 2 WBA, WBO plus IBO and IBA titles. He won 50 fights out of 50.
Throughout his career, Floyd Mayweather set many records and was named the most skilled defensive boxer in history. He won various trophies, among which were 2 Fighter of the Year Awards by The Ring magazine and 6 Best Fighter ESPY Awards.
In 2006, Floyd became a boxing promoter and established his company Mayweather Promotions. He also owns a boxing gym in Las Vegas.
Moreover, the former athlete tried his hand at rapping by recording Yep song, which sounded when he participated in a fight at WrestleMania XXIV. He also took part in Dancing with the Stars season 5 and had a cameo part in Think Like a Man Too film.
Floyd was in an on/off relationship with Josie Harris in 1995-2010. They welcomed their son Koraun in 1999. He was followed by another son named Zion in 2001 and daughter Jirah in 2004. In 1998-2000, the boxer was romantically linked Melissia Brim, a mother of his daughter Iyanna who drew her first breath in 2000. Besides, Mayweather dated model Shantel Jackson in 2006-2014, singer Chilli in 2008-2009 and Princess Love in 2012-2014. In 2018, he started an affair with Jennifer Duran, a Dominican model. They were expecting a child together but suffered a miscarriage.
A curious fact: at the dawn of his career, Mayweather was nicknamed Pretty Boy because of his unmarked face.
